Elizabeth Grissom was born on this day, January 1, 1752. She's better known a Betsy Ross. We hear quite a bit about her today, especially by political conservatives such as Rush Limbaugh because
of the controversy about our National Flag. She allegedly was approached by George Washington to design and construct the first American flag.
Isn't it interesting how one can happen to be at "the right place at the right time?" Just imagine Betsy working as usual and having the President of the United States walk in with a request for her services!
